Desert Eagle vs. Smith and Wesson 500

Two guns have claimed to be the most powerful production weapons on Earth.
In the red corner, weighing 4 pounds fully loaded and 10 inches long, the champion for 10 years straight, The Desert Eagle 50 with a legendary firepower and fame among gun enthusiasts around the world. And in the blue corner, the newcomer, weighing 6 pounds fully loaded and 15 inches long, The Smith and Wesson 500.

Both guns can easily hold the title of 'most powerful gun' . Both fire a half an inch in diameter bullet. Both weigh more than a normal handgun. Both have enough recoil energy to break a guys arm. Both have enough power to stop an elephant. But will the newcomer take the crown away from the reigning king?

Smith and Wesson 500 (Handcannon)
This gun is a revolver.
Fires a .500 Magnum bullet capable of blowing big holes in everything.
Capable of a one hit K.O.
Holds 5 rounds instead of 6 due to its size.
Double action revolving or selected single action.
Overall length of 15 inches.
Difficult to conceal.
Accurate up to 500 yards.
Immense recoil energy and muzzle energy.
Has an immense ability for psychological effect on the enemy due to size.
Costs USD5000 (performance model)

IMI Desert Eagle 50
This gun is a handgun.
Fires a .50 Action Express bullet which can penetrate armor.
Possibly capable of a one hit K.O.
Holds 7 rounds in magazine.
Semi automatic with gas operation.
Possible to conceal.
Accurate up to 150 yards.
Controllable recoil energy due to blowback operation.
Medium psychological effect on the enemy.
Costs USD3000 (high end model)

Overall, in my opinion the Smith and Wesson has officially taken the crown but at a cost. It's price, size and recoil. But its accuracy, power and reliability gives it the right to call itself 'The King'

Review–Pentahotel Hong Kong (Kowloon)

This is my first time doing this sort of a review so please bear with me and do give me your most honest feedback (should there be any). During my recent trip to Hong Kong, I was staying in a rather unique boutique hotel with a superb concept. An Overview
Pentahotel Hong Kong (Kowloon) is situated in an area known as Diamond Hill in Kowloon, the price for the night is significantly cheaper than the hotels on the main island of Hong Kong. Situated inconspicuously among factory and warehouses, privacy and peace are essential guarantees of this hotel.  The hotel boasts a towering 32-floors in height and a total of 695 guest rooms. Despite the building being 32 floors high, there are 6 elevators ensuring that no one has to wait more than a minute before getting an elevator. Accompanying facilities include a convenience store, recreation room, a cafe, a pizza bar and conference facilities. Further details will be listed at the end of the review.First Impressions

Singapore Airline Training and Outing @ Parkroyal Penang

Hello again, dear readers. As you might have already known, I am currently a Senior Marketing Executive for Singapore Airlines Limited. It has been already 7 months since I've joined Singapore Airlines. Anyway, like all major corporations, there will always be either an annual dinner or outing. In the case of Singapore Airlines Limited, for the year 2015, we chose Penang as the spot to have our annual staff outing and dinner.


The day started early. By early, I mean waking up at 0530 hours to head to office (pickup point). Before heading there, we dropped by to fetch my colleague Douglas. What was interesting to know was that the roads at that hour were completely empty. It is eerie to know that the roads that I go through daily, fighting off traffic was now nothing more than a desolate scene out of the walking dead. Anyway, enough thoughts. When we got to the office, we had a light breakfast at the mamak downstairs. After "suffing" ourselves, we head…

23rd Birthday @ Thirty8, Grand Hyatt

I may be about 2 months too late but I do want to share about a truly amazing birthday surprise. As my 23rd birthday came to view, I noticed my dear girlfriend was busy on the phone. I never really gave it much thought about what she was doing (perhaps ordering some girls stuff via the telephone?). However, I didn't know she was planning a surprise for my birthday. 

On the day itself, she dressed herself up really splendidly. I on the other hand managed to put on a shirt and a pair of jeans (the male effort of dressing up splendidly). She set the GPS for me and I just followed it all the way until we found ourselves at the entrance of the Grand Hyatt @ Kuala Lumpur. Mouth left ajar, I began to question what did she do (I'm a frugal person so places like the Grand Hyatt would rarely appear on my list). 
Entering the lift, we went up to the 38th floor and that was when I realised that there was such a restaurant called Thirty8. Unbeknownst to the general people like you and me, th…
